Dosing Furnace Type: Thermdos DC/GC
With different versions from 550 to 3150 kg capacity, the program provides for dosing furnace of Foundr4 a high flexibility for use in die and gravity casting.
The heating by SIC heating elements ensures low energy consumption at high service life.Compared to ladle furnace systems, energy savings of up to 60% and more can be achieved.
The dosing of th liquid metal takes place via the aplication of compressed air of the entire interior furnace chamber through a ceramic riser tube, the liquid metal is fed through a feed channel into the shot sleeve of the casting machine or in a gravity mold.
As a control a PLC control ( made by Siemens type S7-300 ) is used,wich activates the pneumatic actuators.High dosing precision, shortest dosing cycle times and a synchronized timing with the machine are quaranted by the perfect interaction of technical components.Operation via a 12" touch display.
The refilling is a taken place exclusively with liquid metal and because of the specific design of the refilling device virtually with no contamination of the metal.
The refilling is possible during dosing and takes place due to a built in the controller correction process without a change of the dosing quantity.
A generously sized cleaning aperture with pivoting cleaning door allows easy cleaning of the interior furnace chamber.
The use of premium materials, modern insulating materials and high-quality refractory materials provides a high level of operational life expectancy with only little need for spare parts and maintenance.
The wear and spare parts are compatible with many parts from other manufacturers of dosing furnace.
